According to RainStor, Big Data management and retention are challenges affecting every industry but is particularly pronounced in industries that generate large volumes of data from machines, networks, meters and sensors coupled with stringent compliance regulations seen across communications, utilities smart-grid and the broader security sector. As more and more data is generated, the associated challenges with managing and retaining data long-term will impose complexity and increased costs for IT, and also hinder a company's ability to scale and 'future proof' their infrastructure. RainStor helps organizations meet these challenges with specialized database technology purpose built for extreme data compression and de-duplication, which allows organizations to harness their data growth in the most cost-effective way.
